Strategy and Setup
Adding on to the Rupture Beams benefits the Heavy Cluster beam boasts a huge 203 DPS on level II which will melt through many hulls if they are not careful. This DPS is then continued over a period of time as the weapon is a beam. This means it rivals the Xeno Cluster Missile's II damage output which also melts through ships and excels in combat.
Unlike the other beams, once charged up they deliver their DPS in a short frame of time which means players have to run out of range in a much shorter frame of time to avoid deadly damage.
With Beam Capacitors they also have a very decent range which can make cruisers or cutters equipping the weapon less likely to stay in a battleship's firing arc stunned while they cannot get in range to fire.
Just like the Rupture Beam they also make kiting much more hard with battleships, as they have to charge up while keeping the hull in range, unlike Vector Torpedos which release its full DMG instantly. Even worse the beam also usually over commits on a almost dead hull wasting a charge up, the beam also has trouble against squadrons.
To make it even worse it is a reuseable item. Which gives you a limited amount to equip on your ships. This is bad if you want to use this on high level battleships fleets as usually you would have to work very hard to get all 35 of them at the Alien Mobilization event for 1 fleet.
It is also Xeno Division Hulls only, which limits the amount of options that it has in Fleet vs. Fleet combat.
